Physical fitness is an important factor in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Not only can we workout to build up our own muscles but we can also build up our philanthropic muscle by working out for a cause.
Here are just a few fitness charities we find help, empower, inspire, and improve the lives of children, disabled athletes, and veterans around the U.S.:
Girls on the Run
This charity aims to empower girls to reach their potential through the power of running. Running coach volunteers lead girls through running workouts and training while also teaching life skills and building confidence.
Project Fit America
Selected schools receive donations and assistance to help make their schools fitness friendly for both outdoor and indoor fitness equipment, PE lesson plans, and teacher training. These grants help schools foster the love of fitness for kids.
Fresh Air Fund
This summer camp is aimed to provide a free summer getaway for children who live in low-income NYC neighborhoods. This charity has been going strong since 1877 and helps build year-round leadership and educational programs.
